Dad’s Tie

Need some Dad card ideas? This new Shirt & Tie die set is sure to fit the bill! Pick Dad’s favorite colors & put it all together. Pick a greeting from the Dad Phrases set and you’re all set. 

For the Inspiration Challenge (IC964) we are visiting a shop called Miss Jophiel & their Pinterest Board where I found THIS to use as my inspiration. I really liked the sky blue w/ the yellow flowers.

To make my card, I die cut a piece of sky blue w/ the second largest stitched rectangle die then cut it again w/ a herringbone patterned piercing die. I love the texture this gives for a plain background. The shirt front, collars & pocket were cut out of lt yellow & the tie was cut out of a piece of Tropical Dreams paper. My dad would have loved this. He liked yellow & he loved tropical prints. The white background was cut w/ the largest stitched rectangle & for the greeting, I used an off set tag. I stamped it, then ran it half way thru the die cutting machine, turned the die & paper around & cut the other end w/ the flag points to have each end the same. The tie, pocket & collar points were popped up for dimension.

so much for stopping by!
